Day 5 of 5 days of fresh.

Goodness, it hasn’t been easy to find time to cook but here it is! Last day of 5 days of fresh! This meal is really quick and easy which is great for when you get home a little late.

The recipe (serves 2):

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2-4 slices of natural mozzarella cheese
  • A couple leaves of fresh basil (mine isn’t doing so hot so I used like 10 little leaves)
  • A good few shakes of Mrs. Dash tomato, basil, garlic seasoning (all natural)
  • 4 slices of fresh roma tomatoes
  • 1 bag of fresh spinach
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • Nature’s Seasoning to taste
I used my George Foreman grill to start the chicken, it is so fast and easy! Preheat the oven to 400 and warm up the George Foreman. Generously sprinkle the chicken breasts with the Mrs. Dash seasoning. Put the chicken in the George Foreman for about 10 minutes depending on the size of your chicken breasts. While they are cooking slice the tomatoes and mozzarella.
Take out the chicken and place on a foil lined baking sheet. Add basil and tomato on top of chicken breast and cook for about 7 minutes. (I put the mozzarella on top right away but it didn’t give the tomatoes any chance to cook so I think it will be better this way!)
Add the mozzarella and cook for another 5-7 minutes or until melted. While it is cooking add a little olive oil, about 2 tbsp, to a pan and heat over medium heat. Add the entire bag of spinach, I know it seemes like a lot but just do it!
This is how it ends up! A lot goes just a little way! Season with salt, pepper, and nature’s seasoning to taste.
Once the chicken is done place it on a bed of spinach and enjoy!
